Michigan Football field's new hashtag

Michigan just painted a hashtag onto their football field. Obviously the old blue fans are going to hate it, just like they hated the forward pass and mobile quarterback, but I think it's a terrific idea. It really shows how far Twitter has come since its inception in 2006. I remember it was just over a year ago that Twitter was the butt of a lot of jokes and ridicule. Now it is a social network and advertising powerhouse. Businesses who ignore it might as well use carbon copy paper for receipts. Good for Michigan, and their innovation. #goblue
